Being one of the most premium models in the Subaru portfolio, the Outback finally gets a very capable 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine mated to a Lineartronic CVT with eight virtual gears, pushing 246hp and 350Nm.

Of course, the new Outback comes with the brand’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and Eyesight 4.0, Subaru’s latest suite of safety tech.

A spacious and comfortable interior will seat five occupants in fine Nappa leather, and they will enjoy such amenities as fast-charging ports found in both the front and rear rows. Infotainment features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto paired with a Harman Kardon audio system.
